|The Time Reversal Operator and the Quantum Harmonic Oscillator - Patrick Bruskiewich|
In this paper, a pedagogical introduction to the Time Reversal Operator Î for the one-dimensional quantum harmonic oscillator (QHO) is presented. Time does not appear as a Hermitian Operator in Schrodinger's equation such as the position or the momentum operator does, time is merely a parameter. It is shown that the Time Reversal Operator Î is equal to K, the complex conjugate operator for the QHO.
